Minus 3 and dry when driving in.

Huntingdon's ground was certainly testing yesteray. Drying ground, and a result it became glue like.

Wandrin Star finished 4th which on the face of it was not too bad, but annoyingly he did not jump the open dittch in front of the stands well and that put out of finishing closer.. Third was perhaps where he should have finished. The good news he is fine this morning.

It was busy here yesterday but that did not stop Jenny Stewart taking photos for an upcoming article that Karen von Spreyr is writing for Cotswolds Home..

We look like being cold today.. Warm in the office..

Second lot and breakfast was busy..

Nicholas and Cherry Jones were here with David and Leslie Ashforth to see their horse Rose To Fame.

John Benson was here to see his KBRP horses Our Belle Amie, Silver Kayf, Chateau Robin and Vinndication

David Ratcliffe was here to see his KBRP horses Dusty Pearl, Silver Kayf and Vinndication.

Darren Smith was also here to see his KBRP horses Dusty Pearl and Vinndication..

Melissa Jones from the Gloucester Echo was also here to talk Cheltenham to Vinndication's owners...

Third lot Liz Humphrey and Sue Taylor were here to see their KBRP horse Royal Supremo.

We have two runnes today.. Knockanrawley heads to Exeter while Lady Of The Night heads to Warwick.. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Sad news re Musselburgh.. A good racecourse about to be ruined..

John Disney sent this over.. Yes we have had an overdose of his jokes this week but the reason is that he is in hospital recovering from a knee operation and is bored... He will be fine when out and about.. hopefully...

A recent article in the San Francisco Examiner reported that Nancy Pelosi has sued Stanford Hospital, saying that "after her husband had surgery there, he lost all interest in sex."

A hospital spokesman replied: "Your husband was admitted for cataract surgery.  All we did was correct his eyesight.”

Happy birthday to Jeremy Ker..

and finally this came from Lisa..'Just wanted to let you guys know that you have the best trainer website I have visited. I also love reading your blog Mr Bailey - good luck at Cheltenham.'... Thank you indeed Lisa..

Sad and Happy
